Montgomery County employees could get first pay raise in years

Decrease Increase Text size

Montgomery County government employees may see their first pay raise in four years after the county and its union reached a tentative contract agreement, the Washington Post reports.

The two-year deal with Montgomery County's 5,000-member union calls for gradual pay increases for cost-of-living and longevity totaling about 13 percent, the Post's Bill Turque reports.

However, the move isn't without a bit of controversy; the county is still facing the potential for a $134 million budget gap for the next fiscal year.
